Making the Right Choice: Choosing Technology for Student Use

Learn how to choose the best tablets that offer the most educational value for your students inside and outside the classroom.

Properly used, computers can have a great impact on education. Whether it is smartphones, tablets, or chromebooks, new technologies are being announced at a rapid pace, and educators are trying to make sense of it all, especially when it comes to getting technology to all children. This is similar to the battle that raged in the late 1970's when there were many types of computers on the market and schools were trying their best to invest scarce money wisely. This dynamic ondemand webinar by one of the leaders in the educational computing movement looks at the history of educational technology use and explores the kinds of devices on the market today, and those that are just emerging. You will learn a strategy to map out the strengths and weaknesses of each platform in the context of your setting, and increase the likelihood that the investment you make will meet your educational goals for a long time.
